Have you read the newspaper lately?

Depends on the extent to which the game's combat rules covers "hit locations". If it's like GURPS or Runequest then you'd be right. If it's like AD&D where it doesn't then it probably doesn't matter. That said, even with hit locations there would be some tradeoffs - Would you rather have a suit of chainmail that gave you a DR (Damage Resistance) all over or a light plate breastplate that gave you 5 DR in only your chest and abdomen but wieghed slightly less? o_O


That's a judgement call that every player would have to decide for himself. Smile

Then you could have the possiblity of having an armor that covers more areas and the person attacking doesn't get as high of a critical shot as often but is more consistent with damage
Have better quality armor that gives lower consistent damage but higher critical hits (exposed areas). Each armor or weapon has "pros and cons" to them.

This is just my philosophy behind them
